They are indeed Axis stands. I bought them maybe 15 years ago. Very light weight, very sturdy. I use 5 cymbal stands and a hihat stand. Just modified the cymbal sleeve to accept a Tama cymbal lock. I gig them regularly. One of the best investments I ever made!

Hey guys,

This is a new video I recorded, it's pretty heavy and different. I've tried out my new snare on this is well, I'm very happy with it, tell me what you think!!!

Ha, just when I not only accepted my hiatus from playing out, but was also looking forward to getting back into golf and fishing, I get a call to join a band.  I really feel blessed as these are very accomplished players who are above my level.  One of them is on all the albums of a well-known country star and toured with him during his entire career.  Most importantly, though, they're great people.  As Billy Ward would say, "They give good bus." 

Consequently, I put my drum lessons on hold while I get spun up on a long list of songs.  My hands have suffered a bit, but I'll get back on that wagon once I get their set list down.  A side benefit is we can asked 2-4x as much for a gig.

Bob, what cymbal stands are those?

I'm not Bob, but I believe those are Axis cymbal stands. Very cool design.

Yes, depth of shell does not directly affect the pitch ... something one of our members found out after designing a prototype drum that could change it's shell depth.

I've shared this in other discussions, but the depth of a shell offers the POTENTIAL for lower pitches via tuning. The important word is potential. It won't make the drum sound deeper, but it will allow you to get lower/deeper sounds out of the drum.

It's been a while. My main kit for gigging this summer. A 1969ish Slingerland, Skyblue Pearl, 13, 14, 16 and 20. Rogers COB Dynasonic snare, and a nice mix of Mehmet, Agop, and Bosphorus Cymbals. Better Pics as the summer progresses. Enjoy! B.

Nice page!
Question: are there many (any?) video of Moon playing when he wasn't preening for the camera? I have a really hard time equating what I hear on recordings to the "style" I see on video. I would like to see what he's doing when he's really working, making music. B.

So many variables, but essentially what Anthony said. B.
